Rated 2 out of 5 by from Directions need more detail The concept behind this product is great. However the directions need more detail especially if you are not familiar with the topic. Also there are many items that you must have that are not included in the kit. Make sure you look at the what's included section to see what else you need to complete the project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teach STEM Skills with Emerging Technology Kits I love the STEM Challenge Kits. The Emerging Technologies project will focus on engineering concepts and practices in line with the Next Generation Science Standards. They emphasize hands-on activities because students learn by not just reading but doing labs that show the concepts. This project allows students to fill in gaps in their understanding of science concepts while solving authentic problems that are essential to our planet. The kit includes alternative energy in geothermal, hydroelectric, biofuels, solar, wind and new battery technologies. Student teams will design, build, and test emerging energy devices in teams. This gives them the opportunity to learn to work in groups and strengthen their critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills as wells as reflect on the performance and what they could do to improve it. Increasing students’ understanding of the basic processes and principles of scientific thinking through NGSS & STEM
